There was a talk by Fabio Moon and Gabriel Ba at the South bank yesterday (click on the first image for who are they?). The above 100-days-comic-page is Tom Humberstone’s record of that. It was great, and just as he says, motivating, and with lots to look at (sorry I missed you, Tom). For these guys, there have been no shortcuts, just a lot of hard work, some mistakes and experimentation, much drawing, but also a certain truth and interest in finding stories and finding what stories people might want. To stream Alex Fitch’ podcast with the pair, click on the link below. Casanova (written by Matt Fraction, drawn by Fabio Moon) has already been mentioned on this blog, so you should seek that out tomorrow, when it is available here in the UK, Hooray!

Also! Moon and Ba will be painting a wall all day on Friday, at the Queen Elizabeth Hall, in a live  art session. They say they will have their shirts off (girls, take note, get down there, click on the Brazil festival image below for details). Here too is their weekly comic, published in Portuguese and here for your delection, available every week on 10paezinhos. A beautiful thing, stories of life in Brazil, this is something to come back to again, a place to see uniquely personal and resonant storytelling, just as it’s makers would like to see it made.
